IT WORKS SOMETIMES [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 8 March 1928
IT WORKS SOMETIMES We hear people sputtering over the highlyabused English language , and The Collegians abominable use of slang expressions and if we have a vulnerable spot that the sputtering hits , we try to withold some of our pet cusswords , and descriptive phrases . But somehow —perhaps _because psychology tells us so—once a habit is established , it s pretty hard to break away from it . And after all , why since we know slang will always be used , should we make our heads ache , by trying to eternally keep our mind on just the correct and precise word ? If youll stir the imagination a trifle with me right now _, Ill warrant youll agree th at , in the proper atmosp here and environment , slang may be in its element as well as anything . We have a small Eastside—westsider looking for salaried position—ahem—I should say _, a job as office boy . He finds one . He gets it . He tells about his . experience . Well , say , when the elevator gink did the skyrocket act up to floor twen...
"OMNE IGNOTUM " [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 8 March 1928
OMNE IGNOTUM In lan Keith s novel Paid in Full , the author has headed one of his chapters Omne Ignotum . In it he refers to the people who are too proud or too shy to admit that they do not know . They go through conversations and often through life , knowing nothing yet wearing an intensely _knowing look . These peop le are usually the failures of life . Yes , indeed , the world is full of people whose chief joy in life is to impart information . Ail they know they will give freely and _gladly , for nothing . It is to our advantage not to disappoint them . According to Mr . Keith , _affected indifference is the curse of our nation . After all , why should we be ashamed of being enthusiastic ? When we fail in some _undertaking we pretend we dont care . And we do . We care terribly , yet we seem to think if _we don t show it , the world will never know . When we succeed , we pretend it was nothing after all . And all the time we are terribly proud and ashamed to shqy it . Human _nat...

MONDAY [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 8 March 1928
MONDAY It is universally agreed that Monday of the seven days of the week is the most dreaded . We would define it as the second day of the week directly following Sunday . Right here lies one of the most disagreeable features for the student anticipates week-ends and Monday seems to be the tomorrow of yesterday . Its study and burdens are little thought _of- on a beautiful Sunday , especially if one is enjoying congenial company . Four long days stretch out before the calendar says Saturday and then we know Sunday is bound to follow . Association enters into this dread , too , for Monday too may bring to mind a kitchen cluttered with tubs and washing machines . Monday _dinners

"THE TORCHBEARERS" TO BE PRESENTED TO -MORROW AND SAT -URDAY [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 8 March 1928
THE TORCHBEARERS TO BE PRESENTED TOMORROW AND SATURDAY The Torchbearers , one of George Kellcy s most noteworthy comedies , will be presented in The Little Theatre in three performances beginning tomorrow night , by The Williams School . This play _is totally different from any of the three-acts thus far presented here and has already _occasioned considerable comment . It is of the highest type of satirical comedy , and satire has had many great moments in the history of drama . One of its greatest was at the opening night of The Torchbearers at the Forty-Eighth Street Theatre , August 29 , 1922. At that first performance it is a cold , historical fact that sophisticated New Yorkers were in grave dange r of rolling off their seats in hysteria . The staging for the second act _is uni que , being the back-stage of a little theatre during the performance of an amateur production . _Needless to say , there are dozens of screamingly funny lines and situations . The cast includes Lemira S...

SIGMA SIDELIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Ithacan — 8 March 1928
SIGMA SIDELIGHTS On Friday nite a strange thing happened ! The Cookie Jar seemed lo have _moved from Seneca _street to 440 E . Buffalo in order to celebrate the Sigin a Formal dinner . It brought along its gingham table clothes , napkin _; _., candle-light , and even a plate of hors d venrves . ( The Cookie _Jar musn t be given credit for the hors d veurveb—they were undoubtedly ori ginal ) . Lillian Speakman and Virginia _Williams had charge of the dinner . The very fact that Lillian had anything to do with it made us suspicious and our suspicions were that the place cards were in the form of large pennies . _We learned from the verse _on the back that in order to keep these pennies for our scrap-books , we had to pay the large sum of a nickle alloy , which goes to help swell Lillians special fund , Note— ( Lillian is _still selling soap ) _. We also _discovere d new talent in the line of song and dance since each guest as commanded under the sign of the skull and cross bones , to ...
